    ESPN has us at 68 in their version of RPI, but Nolan and the NCAA have us at 60

    There's only one of the three you guys cite that matters.

    What would our RPI have to realistically be to get an at large bid?

    30's, maybe low 40's. Strength of schedule would be the excuse to keep us out.

    There is no at-large bid forthcoming. Even if we win out until the finals.

    i think if we were to finish 30-4 with a loss in the finals, we would have a chance. i only say that because they said they arent relying solely on the RPI anymore. I think the BPI would benefit us enough to maybe get us in

    Nah, we have no quality wins. That's a killer. And in the few games we've played against quality opponents we kinda got our asses kicked.

    Not trying to take anything away from these guys and what they've accomplished this year. I'm damn proud of them. But I don't think we did enough to make the case that we're a top 30-40 team.

    True, but the NCAA doesn't post numbers until mid January or so. Everyone else is a guess, but Warren Nolan is almost always dead on.

    I don't even worry about at large at this point. Even if we had beat Ole Miss and Wyoming, we would have bčen marginal. No quality wins. We might go 30-4 and end up in the NIT. I am fine with that.

    31-3 and in the Dance is good as well, but we are still projecting as a 13 seed for the same reason we won't get an at large.

    Yup. When it comes right down to it, who have we beat worth a flip? NOBODY. We're doing what we should do, beating teams we should.

    This TEAM is pleasure to watch.

    Historically...

    Who you beat is overrated.

    How you beat who you beat is underrated.

    When UL beats Clemson in the postseason rematch this will be the headline story.

    I'll take a 12-seed. First of all, it means we're dancing! Isn't there often at least one 12-5 upset every year?
